of the consulate by a cnn reporter weeks later. so, for you to testify that our posture did not allow a rapid response, our posture was not there because we didn't take into account the threats to that consulate. and that's why four americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had aircraft and other capabilities as short distance away as that base. so for you to testify before this committee that they were consistent with available threat estimates is simply false. that our military was appropriately responsive, what would have been an inappropriate response? since any forces -- no forces arrived there until well after these murders took place and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. and finally, all of this is the result of the so-called light footprint. after gaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caveps, then help -- help them -- caches, help them secure their borders, but the light footprint we did not provide. so it was almost predictable, almost, maybe not predictable, that

heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he said the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-terrorism activities that involve
